We had a really good week away. In brief…
Monday – Visited very good children’s farm yard and adventure playground at Chatsworth.
Tuesday – Tesco’s, and pottered around farm.
Wednesday – Very pleasant visit to Great Granny and Grandad in Derby, followed by a visit to Kelham Island industrial museum in Sheffield ( very friendly staff, HUGE restored steam engine, creative young children’s room, a very interesting place ) , followed by a visit to the Great Aunts and Uncles ( G.A.S, G.U.D, G.A.K, and G.U.T. ) A really lovely time, with lots of toys and stories provided for the children and a delicious tea for all 11 of us!
Thursday – a local footpath walk. Joel loves his backpack.
Friday – a visit to Carsington reservoir and the (submerged) stepping stones at Dovedale. Then on to Derby’s Industrial Museum. The boys loved it. Engines and trains everywhere.
Saturday – a local walk in the morning and then back to the above museum. Joel and I stayed at home because by this point Joel was displaying advanced car seat allergy. Then watched milking time at next door’s farm.
Sunday – home again. With renewed determination not to stay in a city for many more years………
